No. 2 Team Wins Challenge

Kurt Busch's over-the-wall crew became the fifth team of the season to win the Checkers/Rally's Double Drive-Thru Challenge by collecting the win in Sunday's Aaron's 499 at Talladega Superspeedway.

The No. 2 crew spent 171.490 seconds on pit road, helping Busch to a solid third-place finish at the 2.66-mile oval.

"The guys were certainly awesome on pit road," said Busch. "The race called for a mixture of all kinds of stops and they performed flawlessly. It was a good day all around for our Miller Lite Dodge Team. Winning the Checkers/Rally's Double Drive-Thru Challenge puts the icing on the cake for the best finish we've had this season."

Checkers/Rally's will award Busch's crew a prize of $11,000 for winning the weekly competition. An additional $111,150 will be presented to the pit crew with the most Double Drive-Thru Challenge wins at the completion of the 36-race Nextel Cup schedule.

Penske Racing's No. 2 crew includes: Ray Gallaghan (jackman), David Littau (front-tire carrier), Jay Hackney (front-tire changer), Andy Brown (rear-tire carrier), Kevin Hebert (rear-tire changer), Chris Williams (gasman), Steve Williams (catch can) and Daniel Keaton (eighth man).

After nine Nextel Cup races, Mark Martin's/Regan Smith's No. 01 pit crew leads in the Checkers/Rally’s Double Drive-Thru Challenge standings with four wins. Denny Hamlin's No. 11 crew is second with two victories.

To win the Checkers/Rally's Double Drive-Thru Challenge, teams are required to finish on the lead lap while spending the least amount of time on pit road. Checkers/Rally's is in its third season as title sponsor for the pit crew challenge.
